    55Since 0.11, there's a general mechanism in place that allows custom permission policy plugins to grant or deny any action on any kind of Trac resources, even at the level of specific versions of such resources.
     6
     7Note that for Trac 0.12, `authz_policy` has been integrated in trunk branch as `tracopt.perm.authz_policy.*`

    79== Permission Policies ==
     
    1416 - Install [http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/configobj.html ConfigObj] (required).
    1517 - Copy authz_policy.py into your plugins directory.
    16  - Put a [http://swapoff.org/files/authzpolicy.conf authzpolicy.conf] file somewhere (preferably on a secured location on the server, not readable for others than the webuser.
     18 - Put a [http://swapoff.org/files/authzpolicy.conf authzpolicy.conf] file somewhere, preferably on a secured location on the server, not readable for others than the webuser. If the  file contains non-ASCII characters, the UTF-8 encoding should be used.
    1719 - Update your `trac.ini`:
     20   1. modify the [TracIni#trac-section permission_policies] entry in the `[trac]` section
    1821{{{
    1922[trac]
    2023...
    2124permission_policies = AuthzPolicy, DefaultPermissionPolicy, LegacyAttachmentPolicy
    22 
     25}}}
     26   2. add a new `[authz_policy]` section
     27{{{
    2328[authz_policy]
    2429authz_file = /some/trac/env/conf/authzpolicy.conf
    25 
     30}}}
     31   3. enable the single file plugin
     32{{{
    2633[components]
    2734...
    28 authz_policy = enabled
     35authz_policy.* = enabled
    2936}}}

    6572That kind of fine-grained permission control needs a definition file, which is the one used by Subversion's mod_authz_svn.
    66 More information about this file format and about its usage in Subversion is available in the [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/book.html#svn-ch-6-sect-4.4.2 Subversion Book (Per-Directory Access Control)].
     73More information about this file format and about its usage in Subversion is available in the  [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.serverconfig.pathbasedauthz.html Path-Based Authorization] section in the Server Configuration chapter of the svn book.

     107where ''modulename'' refers to the same repository indicated by the `repository_dir` entry in the `[trac]` section. As an example, if the `repository_dir` entry in the `[trac]` section is {{{/srv/active/svn/blahblah}}}, that would yield the following:
     108
     109{{{
     110[trac]
     111authz_file = /path/to/svnaccessfile
     112authz_module_name = blahblah
     113...
     114repository_dir = /srv/active/svn/blahblah
     115}}}
     116
     117where the svn access file, {{{/path/to/svnaccessfile}}}, contains entries such as {{{[blahblah:/some/path]}}}.
